Ballroom With A Twist Cast Meets The Cast Of “Ruthless! The Musical”, Photos Of DWTS Dmitry Chaplin, Chelsie Hightower, And More

In more Ballroom With A Twist news, the cast attended the hit off Broadway show “Ruthless! The Musical” while in New York City this week. To view a fun gallery of backstage shots including photos of former Dancing With The Stars pros Chelsie Hightower and Dmitry Chaplin, see BroadwayWorld.com. Ballroom With A Twist producer Scott Stander advises everyone to see this show if you are in New York City. It’s “so much fun”!

The cast of Off-Broadway’s smash hit Ruthless! The Musical met the stars of the live dance sensation BALLROOM WITH A TWIST, which is currently touring the country. And the sparks flew! It was a love-fest for the talented showmen and women after the August 10th performance of RUTHLESS! when the stars of both of both shows mingled and posed for photos.

Gilles Marini To Do Ballroom With A Twist In Patchogue, NY Aug. 12 – 16th

According to the Greater Patchogue, Gilles Marini has been added to the cast of “Ballroom With A Twist” from Aug. 12 – 16 in Patchogue, NY. You can even meet him…

Not only is Marini part of the cast in the interactive celebration of song and dance called Ballroom with a Twist — which is running from Aug. 12-16 in Patchogue through Gateway Playhouse — attendees might even get to chat or dance with him.

They’d get to meet the other performers at Patchogue Theater for the Performing Arts as well.

Those include Anna Trebunskaya, Chelsie Hightower and others from the show Dancing with the Stars, as well as past participants of American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance. (See video from Wednesday’s warmups.)

In a pre-opening night interview Wednesday, we asked Marini if he was aware the local ladies had been asking about him.

“Saying like, what? What is he not wearing?” the French model responded.

“I’m very excited to do the show,” Marini continued. “People get involved. It’s not only watching and that’s it. There’s a lot more to it, that’s why we call it Ballroom with a Twist, because we’re making people involved.”

So how would admirers of his work and his, um, ability to shower respond to getting so up close and personal with him?

“I think the response is enjoyment and they realize we are very much human,” he continued. “People see the people from the movie industry or whatever it is, not too accessible, but we all become one. Whenever people come to the show we all become one.”

Dancing with the Stars Season 21 – PRO WATCH!!

Here we are again!! It’s about that time of year, folks.

And, as usual, the pros that I don’t want to be in, are already in. Or in Derek’s case….mostly in. 🙂  He’s been telling fans in Meet and Greets that he’s likely going to be on but doesn’t want to confirm in case something happens to change that. DWTSGossip says that he did indeed say yes to this season – but as she correctly pointed out, he’s said no before and it turned into a yes. But, this is Derek’s life right now (many, MANY irons in the fire) – he’s not doing it for PR, he just doesn’t know what’s going to happen. Drives me crazy. 🙂  I’ll be writing a blog soon on PureDerekHough.com about my Meet and Greet and how he answered a particular question I asked him that bodes very well for his future.

Val has also said he’ll be back and, as reigning champ, that’s no surprise. He also doesn’t seem to have the options that Derek does. I also will be curious to see how much they pimp and manipulate for him and his partner, now that he actually has a MBT. This could be one of the more interesting things about this season – if their behavior toward him changes, now that it’s mission accomplished. Someone please explain to me why Sharna or Emma don’t get the pimpage treatment?? Their social media accounts can’t touch the men’s, but still.

What about Mark? I expect him back as it helps his music career, and now his studio, for him to be on the show. I think it’s about time for him to have another shot at the MBT again – it’s not like he’s been handed ringers the past couple seasons (unlike some), he’s just been surprised and fortunate, like Derek has in the past. But I haven’t seen any talk from him on the matter. Read more..

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)
